    Solid Very Fine Small Red Seal 1880 Silver Twenty

    Fr. 312 $20 1880 Silver Certificate PMG Very Fine 25. Only 34 examples are known of this number, without a single piece in the Track & Price census listed as uncirculated. This note has extraordinary margins, excellent color and not a hint of a defect or repair of any kind. It's a wonderfully natural piece which in itself is somewhat of a miracle for this type. The two most recent sales were in June of 2007 when the highest graded example known, a PCGS 50, sold for $54,625, and in mid-2006 when an uncertified Fine sold for $16,100. This note appears to us as though it deserves to be in a 30 or 35 holder. This number is seldom available in any grade. And, with the small red seal, it's a one-number type. PMG has graded only two Fr. 312's to date, with this solid VF 25 being the higher. A very important note.
